Can I shoot for Wellesley?

<p>I'm a female (obviously) in the class of 2006.</p>

<p>I will not indicate my race on my app because I don't believe in that. I may just be a weirdo, but I just don't believe they need to know that.</p>

<p>I will have a 4.02 weighted gpa by graduation. I should have 3 or 4 APs by graduation. I did not take the AP Gov. test. I am plannning on an AP science and English course.</p>

<p>My counselor can attest to the fact that I lobbied intensely to get into harder classes, but the stupid system at school wouldn't let me. Perhaps that will boost my counselor recommendation.</p>

<p>All my teachers love me too, so I suppose that's a plus.</p>

<p>I am aiming for the EQUIVALENT of a 1300-1400+ on the new SAT I that is out of 2400. Please, do not mistake me and think I am shooting for a 1400 out of 2400. Some people have mistaken that in the past...</p>

<p>SAT IIs I will take include French, Math, and maybe something else...not sure yet</p>

Piano for about 2 or 3 years, will submit a recording
Volunteer at local hospital, will have over 100 hours by graduation
Translator at my church, translate from Korean to English
Starting up a French painting club that recreates French paintings in mosaic-style
French Club member for all 4 years, prospective office next year
French Honor Society
National Honor Society
Quill and Scroll (Journalism Honor Society)
Newspaper for 2 years
Participated in a mini-medical school, had to apply, make a cut, was interviewed</p>

<p>I think that's all...Haven't put up one of these chances posts in awhile to remember what to write...</p>

<p>I live in IL.</p>

<p>Ask me whatever else info you need to eval me.</p>

<p>Some schools other than Wellesley that I am looking at are:
University of Illinois at Chicago (probably a safety)
University of Chicago (reach most def.)
Carleton (reach fo sho)
Harvard (reach fo sho, but trying because I have family there)
Illinois Wesleyan (not sure, because I've recently discovered that it doesn't offer a major in international studies)
possibly Boston U or Northeastern
Grinnell (doesn't have international studies either)
maybe Barnard</p>

<p>Help me with more match schools, some more safeties. It seems to me that I'm reaching a lil too much at the moment.</p>
